Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Transmission electron micrographs of FDL (flexor digitorum longus) tendons at P4 and P60 from wild-type (Col14a1 +/+) and Col14a1tm1Debi/Col14a1tm1Debi (Col14a1 -/-) mice. At P4, tendon fibroblasts are surrounded by small collagen fibers (fibril bundles) (*). The wild-type collagen fibers are uniform in shape, whereas the mutant bundles are more irregular. In addition, the fibroblast and the compartments defined by their processes are disrupted in the mutant tendon relative to the organized wild-type controls. At P60, the collagen fibers are much larger than at P4 are defined by attenuated fibroblast processes (arrows). There is comparable structure and organization in wild-type and mutant tendons at this mature time point when type XIV collagen is not expressed in wild-type mice. Bar, 3 um.
